npm Build Status Build Status

The goal of this module is to add user interaction on a file input with multiple files as a progressive enhancement (the form still works if this JavaScript is disabled). Live demo

Usage

With npm

Install the package using npm or yarn

npm i @grafikart/drop-files-element
# or
yarn add @grafikart/drop-files-element

Then import it in your script

import '@grafikart/drop-files-element'

With unpkg.com

<script type="module" src="//unpkg.com/@grafikart/drop-files-element"></script>

Then use the custom element in your html using is="drop-files.

<input
        type="file"
        multiple
        name="files[]"
        label="Drop files here or click to upload."
        help="Upload files here and they won't be sent immediately"
        is="drop-files"
/>

Safari

Unfortunately safari doesn't support Custom built-in elements and does not have a constructor for DataTransfer (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=170168) so this custom element won't display (native input will be displayed)

Customization

Attributes

Attribute Type Description
label string The label used as a bold text for the drop area
help string Help text used as a secondary text for the drop area

CSS Custom Properties

Property
--drop-border-color
--drop-border-color-hover

HTML Structure

This component doesn't use shadow dom so you can customize the style using CSS and overwrite the style already included inside this custom element.
